So, one of my goals this season is to complete a Super Series (200, 300, 400 and 600) on top of the Year Round Randonneur. Partially for its own sake, I've been wanting to push beyond the 200km mark, and partially due to the fact that it will be necessary for entering the Sydney to Melbourne 1200 in November.

Looking forward across the rest of the season, the following is the list of all rides 300km or longer in NSW

A number of these rides can be done as permanents:

300 - Woy Woy Rd Rd Trip Trip, Winery Wander (also Hawkesbury Valley Randonnee and a ride to Cessnock)

400 - Singleton Tour (also a different Singleton Route).

600 - The Two Day Loop

At this point I'm looking at doing the Lower Hunter Randonnee (300km) on March 9 and Singleton Tour (400km) on April 6. I would have liked to do the Wing It West 300 for a change of scenery, not to mention Rob is organising it, but I've got concert tickets that day.

That then leaves me with all of the North Sydney options for the 600. My preference would be to do either the Festum Prophetae or Two Day Loop as both will have riding through the west of Sydney as well as the north, for a bit of variety without having to get to a non-Northern Sydney start. Anyone else in?

that's about where my positioning is, also followed his advice. I have flat large pedals on the cargo bike and my foot naturally falls in the same place when trudging that thing for kilometres so it makes sense for Audax rides as well.

I do find if I want to 'sprint' the cargo bike the contact point will shift to more forward position, but I can't sustain that for long.

oh yeah, walked up Watagan Gap, no shoulder, traffic fast and intense, steep hill. Not the place to be wobbling all over the place. The walk on the grass was a relief and had different muscles being used for a short time.

Coming down the other side, I remembered, at the last possible moment I am sure, that if you get the death wobbles clamp your knees to the top tube. The fright of my life, face drains of blood just thinking about it.
